So this is the HSET, which stands for Human Systems Ejection Tower. And yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. This is a video of people shooting people-shaped things (like mannequins) into the air. I presume that they intend for them to come down? Or maybe not? Either way, I’m super excited this thing exists in our military.
Hey can we sign up for a free ride?
